A new name in automotive luxury, a new line of performance cars headed by the ground-breaking Infiniti FX, and a whole new ownership experience arrive in the UK from September 2009 with the launch of Infiniti.
UK prices and specification position the Infiniti FX at the heart of the large crossover market where its dramatic styling, comprehensive standard equipment and peerless quality are ready to stand comparison with any rival. The three-model Infiniti FX line-up starts at £42,600 on the road (OTR) for the Infiniti FX37 GT and rises to £53,800 for the Infiniti FX50S. This performance champion of the range can accelerate from 0-62mph in just 5.8 seconds.
As well as a complete specification aimed at the enthusiast driver, the Infiniti FX offers something else as well: an ownership experience to make every Infiniti FX customer feel like a VIP. Infiniti can promise this partly because it is not aiming for large volumes - unusually the company is happy for its products to be a rare sight on Britain's roads. Infiniti expects its customers to appreciate this level of exclusivity, too.
The Infiniti FX is exceptional as a full-size five-seater crossover for its relatively light weight - aluminium parts make it the lightest SUV in its class - and engine technology that takes V6/V8 efficiency to new levels, benefiting both performance and economy.
Infiniti takes an intelligent view when it comes to specifying its products, standardising the sort of features luxury buyers expect, and some they don't, including Scratch Shield paint. A long equipment tally means less time wasted by the customer ploughing through an options list. For example, every Infiniti FX comes not only with leather upholstery but also electrically adjustable, heated and ventilated front seats. Yet Infiniti still offers a high degree of personalisation possibilities, not least through a wide variety of colours and trim.
Exceptional equipment across the Infiniti FX range include Infiniti's new Connectiviti multimedia platform. Comprising a host of entertainment, information and convenience features in a notably user-friendly format, Connectiviti is an integral part of every Infiniti FX in the UK. The 30GB hard-disk drive satellite navigation version, Connectiviti+ (optional on the Infiniti FX37 models and standard on the Infiniti FX50S) comes with smart route recalculation and speed camera warnings, as well as access to 22,000 hotels, restaurants and points of interest in a world first tie-up with Michelin Guides.Published 10 June 2009
